Birdwell v Swinton

Stan Briggs : I remember playing football for Hemmingfield Ellis and I lived just opposite the school at 5 Tingle Bridge Lane. The school may have come under Brampton and I was wondering if this was the same match I was in. I remember a picture in the papers and I was sat in the middle of the from row holding the ball with year on it. I remember one of the other players was Derek Short.   I remember us winning the game , the school had a big party and a cake like a football pitch . Also the football team went to a theatre in Barnsley .

The photo below indicates that Hemingfield won the Totty Cup in 1953/54.  Newspaper reports suggest this was NOT the case.  However, it may have been that they won the Junior League Cup – for the winners of each of the 4(?) sections to compete in.
